LEGOLAND Florida has confirmed that its new water park will open to the public on May 26, 2012, featuring a range of LEGO-themed attractions.
The park, which itself debuted in 2011, had previously only revealed that the water park would open some time in May. It will host a number of slides, a wave pool, a lazy river and a water playground. Several of these will be inherited from Cypress Gardens' Splash Island water park, which once sat on the same site.
Tickets to the water park will not be sold separately, with guests at the LEGOLAND Florida theme park instead having the option to upgrade their ticket for an additional $12 per person (or $3 per child under the age of 3).
Located on the site of the closed Cypress Gardens theme park, LEGOLAND Florida is home to more than 50 attractions aimed at families with children aged 2-12. The opening of the water park is part of owner Merlin Entertainment Group's long-term plan to turn its Florida park into a multi-day destination.
More details of Florida's new aquatic attraction can be found in Theme Park Tourist's recent report on the LEGOLAND Florida Water Park's attraction line-up.
